why can't I see videos in instructables?

Every time I open an instructable that has videos in it, the frame where the video should be appears empty and there is no way I can see the video. Any idea whether this has to do with some sort of add on?

Flaw in video postings

It seems somewhat flawed that you can't publish a video in an instructable without revealing another net-identity. Not a BIG flaw, but see for instance This forum thread.

More thoughts on Video-Only Instructables

Hello, not that I am unable to view videos on instructables, but more and more instructables are simply a video, sometimes with two sentences, sometimes not even that. Not that I dislike video tutorials and such, but many people still have low bandwith, or (like me) can not turn on the sound all the time since it would bug other people. Also sometimes it is more usefull to read instructions, steps and technical data. Plus there might be deaf people interested in some project but unable to understand all steps due to the fact some videos will depend on audio explanation only. My two cents: Include a minimum text length check for instructables. Video only should be youtube or such, not Instructables.

Instructables bumpers available for your project videos!

The team here at HQ has just completed a new set of Instructables bumpers for the videos you include in your tutorials! There's at least one for every category on the site (with the exception of Home; that's coming soon) and you can download them and add them to the videos you embed in your instructables. They were super fun to make and we're looking forward to seeing them in your projects. Leave us a link in this forum if you use any of them!

issue accessing video file associated with my instructables

Hi guys, Hi Instructable team(?) anyway, I went to look at one of my old(er) instructables about making a electronically programmable fireworks display and one of the files I have attached won't download, just give me an error. I have a video file attached and when I try to access or download it it just gives me an error "forbidden" and when I try to access it in the editor it redirects me to the CDN server and gives me the error This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below. AccessDenied Access Denied 3128C04DD883CD9B g1ZgkzFOIWMZecnNBhONUJJyPAPUAdCHAVPB3dF4BaFpehWjSy/jSyh1uKuHdaCD2uLn28MEfSE= Any ideas? Thanks for any help Justin_

Embedding a Second Video in a Video Instructable?

I'm trying to embed a second video into my video instructable. I'm guessing that because it's a video instructable it is limited to the one main video and no other videos can be embedded? https://www.instructables.com/id/Optimus-Prime-Transformers-Costume/ You can see I've been trying, but I guess that's my question: is there any way to embed another video?

Setting video size no longer working (youtube)

The ability to define size for youtube videos has disappeared. Older instructables which included sized videos have reverted to a larger default size. Probably a change on their end. Many of my videos are recorded to showcase audio, not video--so I've always sized them down. This isn't really a huge problem.

Embedding Instagram Video Into Instructable

I was creating an instructable yesterday for the newest "Burning Questions" contest, which encourages submission via instagram video and vine. The issue is, these video hosts are not supported by instructables' video embed function.  When attempting to enter the instagram embed code (OSX, both Chrome and Safari), the iframe placeholder will appear temporarily, but will disappear when the instructable is saved or when the user attempts to publish. Only when uploading the video to an approved host was I able to post a video sourced from instagram.
